UPDATE: Landowners urged to check buildings in missing man search

A major search is continuing for a Derry man who went missing while on a camping break in Inishowen on Monday.

An appeal has also been made for landowners in the Isle of Doagh area and surrounds to check coastal lands for the missing man.

Anthony ‘Tony’ Griffiths, aged 59, from the Culmore area of Derry has not been seen since Monday

His family had been camping with him at the Isle of Doagh, near the famine village, but discovered on Tuesday morning that he had left the area where he had been expected to sleep the previous night.

They later alerted gardaí and a full scale search involving the Gardaí, RNLI and Coastguard got underway.

The search recommenced yesterday morning.

Gardaí in Buncrana appealed for landowners in the Isle of Doagh, Clonmany, and Carndonagh areas to search their properties or outbuildings.

A spokesman for Malin Coast Guard said the research recommenced yesterday before 9 am with five teams on shore, a boat in the water and they were later joined by the coastguard helicopter from Sligo to carry out an aerial search of Trawbreaga Bay at low tide.
